    Symptoms: After upgrading Rom Manager, you can't boot into clockworkmod 5.0.2.0.

    Reason: Rom Manager executes a script containing this code:


    Code (Text):
    1. dd if=/sdcard/clockworkmod/download/download.clockworkmod.com/recoveries/recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.0-shadow.zip of=/preinstall/recovery/recovery.zip
    It wants to convert and copy the new CWM 5.0.2.0 to your /preinstall/recovery/ folder. It always did this before, but the filesize of the new recovery has changed. This requires a certain amount of room... room you might not have given the new size (if you're like Iceman0803, you're off by about .01mb).

    Solution:
    1) Using root explorer, go to /preinstall/app/ and delete any apks you don't use (NFSShift is a great one to delete, its huge)

    2) Reflash Clockworkmod Recovery in ROM Manager.


    Now you can reboot to CWM 5.0.2.0 through Rom Manager. Enjoy.
